It's been a thrilling playoff run for the Giants. So thrilling that, by now, many fans may be numb to basic ebbs and flows of a baseball game. For those needing an extra jolt, here are some totally arbitrary prop bets for the 2012 World Series:

Over/Under (series total): .250 -- Buster Posey's batting average 2 -- RBI's by Giants pitchers 1.5 -- hits by Tigers pitchers 1 -- Hunter Pence home runs 9 -- Marco Scutaro hits 2.5 -- times Tim McCarver says that Brandon Belt will one day win a Gold Glove award. 16 -- Justin Verlander strikeouts 4.5 -- Tigers errors 2.5 -- broken bats Lines: +275 -- Buster Posey ends the series with a higher batting average than Miguel Cabrera. -450 -- Derrick Jeter's injury gets mentioned at some point. -350 -- Jim Leyland gets thrown out of a game before Bruce Bochy does. +300 -- a game gets delayed by rain. -250 -- Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval are on base at the same time more than Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder are. -125 -- Santiago Casilla allows more earned runs that Jose Valverde. Odds: 25/1 -- Brandon Belt lands in stands on foul ball catch. 35/1 -- Someone gets Splash Hit. 50/1 -- Mitt Romney attends Tigers home game. 8/1 -- Mitt Romney claims to be a Tigers fan. 140/1 -- Tim Lincecum records the final out in a game. 350/1 -- Brandon Crawford hits a Grand Slam. 750/1 -- Prince Fielder bunts.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
